Fundraise Your Way

Getting Started

Making a difference doesn’t have to be a huge undertaking—you can turn everyday events and activities into fundraisers. You can turn almost anything into a way to help us imagine a world where cancer is preventable, detectable and beatable for all.

Be Creative

Have a special occasion like a birthday or a wedding coming up? Hosting a car wash in your community? Do you organize a regular poker tournament with friends or family? There are so many chances to turn everyday events into fundraisers for Prevent Cancer Foundation donations.

Want to fundraise but don't know where to start?

These steps will get you going: 

  • Start a fundraiser! Download our toolkit for fundraising tips and tools.
  • Customize your fundraising page with images and a personal message. Let everyone know why you're passionate about preventing cancer or detecting it early and why they should donate.
  • Set a goal and make the first Prevent Cancer Foundation donation—people are more likely to donate to a page that has already raised some money. $5 should get the ball rolling!
  • Ask friends and family for support by sharing, tweeting or posting your fundraiser on social media, writing an email or making a phone call. Connecting with your community will help you reach your goal.
  • Say thank you when you receive donations to show your appreciation to everyone who helps you reach your goal.
